A passionate family: Reflections on the WSSCC Global Forum on Sanitation and Hygiene

This was the first ever Global Forum on Sanitation and Hygiene. There have been the regional meetings – Sacosans, Africasans and so on, but never one for the whole developing world. WSSCC (and most notably Archana Patkar, who got a standing ovation at the end) did a great job in imaginative and thorough planning. The facilitation by Archana, Barbara Evans and others was outstanding. WSSCC had brought together some 450 of us. There was fuller representation of Africa than usual, and fewer Indians than one might have expected.

Inspiring to act and breaking the mould at the WSSCC Global Forum in Mumbai

The WSSCC Forum in Mumbai has been simply amazing. I do not regret having set aside time to come and thanks to Robert and Petra for the encouragement and support. I have been on the move a lot since July 2011. I arrived here on Sunday 9th 2011 around 4am. The inauguration was amazing and really colourful. We had a taste of Indian culture through music, drumming and dance. However, looking around the hall I could not tell if people enjoyed the music or not.
